    New Mobile- What should I Get??

    I've got a Nokia N73, brilliant! 3.2meg camera and loads more that I'll probably never use.

    Hunting 1.8T

    When I start the engine it immediately starts to hunt & won't idle evenly. This only lasts about 30 secs or so and it seems to sort itself out then thats it until I have to start it again. I take it this is the start of trouble but any ideas what it is?

    B5 suspension v noisy!

    4 per side?? I take it spray grease isn't a cheap fix?! Is it an easy bolt off/on job? I must confess to not having had a look yet.... it's much easier to ask on here than venture out into the cold and wet.

    B5 suspension v noisy!

    My car has recently started making horrible creaking sounds with the front suspension, it still handles fine but sounds like the front is about to drop off!! Any ideas?

    Which DV??

    As I think my DV has gone, I'm going to replace it but having looked on VAGparts there are 3 types: 034145710B Audi A4 £25.49 06a145710P Passat £17.58 06a145710N S3/Golf/TT £15.54 Any know if there are differences in dimensions or will they all fit?

    n75 location

    I'm no expert but keep it under 3.5K and you should be ok!

    n75 location

    Black plastic sounds OEM. You can get new ones from Vagparts for about 20 quid or go for and aftermarket metal one like a forge with changeable spring rates. Change it & it'll boost fine again!

    Sensor question

    Should the blue sensor I'm holding be attached to anything?? It's located to the rear of block next to the bulkhead on my 1.8T sport with the AEB engine. Any advice appreciated.
